You cannot hold onto everything. That would be nice, but you can’t. And in fact, even if you can hold onto everything you want, it will be less meaningful as you lift the constraints that life put on us. Constraints make us choose things we want to hold onto more wisely and carefully.
Lately, I’ve had some interesting experiences with feedback, learning about being on the delivering end and then on the receiving end.
- Lower your expectations. Rather, be the person you want in your life first.
- You get what you put in. Actively invest in the relationships you want to build, grow, and maintain.

Listen and repeat what you exactly heard, rather than to share your own interpretation.

Scratch it. Scratch everything I said in the preface. (I’ll leave it there to remind me of the learning.)
I’ve been putting off this blog for a very long time.
